Quote from ‘Minute Logic: Chapter I. Intended Characters of this Treatise’
Arguments are of three kinds, Deduction, Induction, and what I call Abduction [—] If the conclusion is accepted because, having been hypothetically propounded as a hypothesis, it predicted that experiments would yield results which they have thereupon been found to yield, the argument is Inductive.
